Rated 5 out of 5 by MarkMcr from Great item To be truthful ok blown away by the quality of the sound that comes from the sound bar. A great product at a great price

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ancientmech from Good sound for a little one You can tell it's not a full blown sound system, but it sounds several times better than built in TV speakers. It's strange, at higher volumes there seems to be a bit of clout missing in the lower to midtones, but I feel that can only be solved by having bigger speakers. Bluetooth disconnects and powers down after a time of silence which is annoying when you return and have to turn it on again.

Rated 2 out of 5 by happyjoe from Tinny Partner bought this to replace our old soundbar that was failing. To be honest, it sounds pretty bad, tinny.

Rated 1 out of 5 by 8676 from Works sometimes Don't know when the product is on. In the manual it says that the buttons will light up on the sound bar when on. A hit and miss affair!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by burmz83 from Simply effective Ordered this off the website for free delivery expecting it to turn up in a week or so. To my surprise, 2 days later it was here! Bought this to improve the sound on the bedroom TV, and for that it does a cracking job. Was also able to get all remotes working with it despite being connected via optical. It’s never going to be the same as the Sonos in the living room, but it was also a tenth of the price! Deducted a star due to the manual being online only rather than included in the box. Perfect for my needs, and Richer Sounds deliver (see what I did there..?!) once again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by oellph from Amazingly simply to setup and immediately great Setup was about as simple as you can get. Unbox, connect power, connect HDMI to ARC input on TV. Boom! Sudden and amazingly great sound. No fiddling swapping sound inputs or having to use a separate remote for volume. It just works. And sound is impressively immersive. I love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from Incredible value, and pretty good looking. You could have a TV ten times more expensive than mine, but if you're using the TV's in-built speakers then you have worse sound than my modest set-up. This sound bar is incredibly decent, and looks cuter and classier than much of the expensive competition. This really cannot be beaten on bang-for-buck. A soundbar is the best investment you can make in a TV - don't spend all that cash on visual experience alone, put aside some budget for a soundbar.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Norm27 from It's stopped working I connected this to my new LG 50NANO756PA using the HDMI (Arc) connection and it worked fine initially, but then suddenly the soundbar has stopped working. Really disappointed as the sound isn't great from the TV.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Bamber from Easy to install! Bought this as a Christmas present to myself but had to open it early as outer packaging was damaged and needed to ensure that unit was okay. Fortunately it was and I have been using it for a couple of weeks now. Easy to use,not sure that tv sound is that great but very good when connected to phone with Bluetooth. Nice and compact and probably worth the money.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Christoph321 from Good Sound for normal TV watching I have to say I bought this sound bar because of its unusual size and not it's sound. It was the only sound bar I could find which sat snuggly under the TV. The sound is fine for normal (speaking) TV but not outstanding for music. Perhaps that's why there is now a new JBL studio sound bar which is bigger and presumably better - but it wouldn't fit under my TV! It's quite good for me but a bit pricey. There are lots of cheaper ones out there possibly with better sound, but the wrong dimensions. Bit of a gap in the market I would say!

Rated 2 out of 5 by David 25 from Sounds drop out at quite moments I bought this from Romford store in 2019, and it's never performed satisfactory.Each time there is a quite moment the dialogue just drops out. This is a known fault as confirmed by JBL customer services so why are the sound bars being sold with the fault?

Rated 4 out of 5 by Stephen_K from A step backwards from 1.0 I own the Bar (1.0) and recently purchased the Bar 2.0 (Black). Initial observations: ... sound lacks the richness and bass of 1.0 ... it's not actually black - more a dark metallic grey (I don't care, but others might, and the manufacturer would seem less silly if they can get these details right) ... the 'on' light stays on (unlike the 1.0) ... a minor detail, however with the 1.0 you can just leave it going and it sits there unobtrusively ... it lacks connection options compared with the 1.0 - no AUX in. And if you want to use optical cable then fab, but buy your own (JBL provided on for the 1.0). HDMI cable is included in the box for 2.0 though. Most of these are minor points that only pedants would care about ... but the sound? That should raise the eyebrows of any audiophile. Still a good price, but the Bar 1.0 is still being sold at the same price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Greg1O1 from Very happy with this soundbar at price point Had initial connection issues with HDMI with loss of sound synchronization. Support very helpful - recommended Optical. No problems since. Firmware updated to solve.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Shane66 from Second Sound Bar ... first one just didn't work .. I had a gift card after buying a new TV so decided to use it on this. First one just didn't work, ok it did once or twice but took about half an hour to set it up and I'm good with IT! Ordered a replacement, which did eventually arrive after chasing (I would add the teleservice was excellent) … and what do I think? Well, it works more than number one, I have an LG OLED, connected to HDMI Arc etc, but sometimes the sound just drops off. In short, for £100 its ok, but I probably wouldn't recommend it, unless you want to fiddle with the settings all the time. Shame really.

Rated 3 out of 5 by dls36 from Slightly disappointed Slightly disappointed, given the mostly positive reviews & cited awards. Spoken dialogue doesn’t sound like it’s in stereo & the mid-range is generally flat. I can’t detect much surround sound effect either but the bass is pretty good. I wonder if some different EQ settings might help, as were available on the previous Studio model? I suspect it’s a case of ‘you get what you pay for’ but the poor speech quality means I can’t recommend this as a TV speaker.

Rated 5 out of 5 by John 4789 from Extremely good value for the money I bought this to improve the sound quality on a small tv and have been extremely pleased by the performance and quality of this item. I expected some improvement but was not expecting the difference this has made. The clarity of the sound from the tv was a major problem and we struggled to understand the spoken word and music etc was very tinny. As soon as the soundbar was installed it made a huge difference and we could clearly hear everything at the other end of a large room. Also the bass output is amazing and added depth to music in particular. All round an excellent piece of kit and extremely good value.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Mat1975 from Good Soundbar Happy with the soundbar and very good for the price. Good clear sound and bass and treble about right. But in hindsight would have got another sound Bar where the bass and treble can be adjusted.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from Easy setup , sound quality good. Had this for over a week. Good points , easy set up on all 3 connections HDMI with ARC, Bluetooth and Optical. Looks good under TV. Using with LG TV , tv remote operates volume and connected via HDMI turns off and on with TV. Only one con. Pic shows HDMI in blue in centre of soundbar. Assume earlier model as I don’t see this or any option .(comment on this would be nice) Otherwise for the price this is an excellent upgrade from the normal TV speakers.

Rated 3 out of 5 by sooty8 from Its OK I have just purchased this sound bar at a reasonable price, easy to set up, I am using the HDMI cable to give me the best results. The good points, its light, easy to use, small. The bad points, you have to have the volume set on maximum to bring out any good quality sound experience. I would spend more if you can on at least 300 watt sound bar, 80 watt does not cut it.
